On January 12th fourth and fifth graders at elementary school competed in an annual Geography Bee. The Geography bee is part of a larger national competition sponsored by the National Geographic Society. Thirteen 4th and 5th grade students advanced to the finals in this contest of geographic wit and knowledge. In order to be selected for the bee, participants had to have the highest score out of their respective homerooms on a pretest that was given to all fourth and fifth grades. “All of our homeroom winners should be very proud of their accomplishment." said Mrs. Viglietta, fifth grade teacher and organizer of the event. The qualifying pretest was very difficult.

Mr. Tenney, principal of the elementary school quizzed the participants on areas ranging from United States geography, continents, world travel and foreign countries. The field of thirteen was narrowed down to two students, Alex Brown and Jordan Perham, after several rounds of questions and answers. Alex Brown won the contest on the following question: Grand Canyon National Park, a world heritage site and one of the most studied geologic landscapes of the world, lies on the Colorado Plateau in the northwestern part of which state? Do you know the name of this state? Alex will now take a test in an attempt to qualify for a state level tournament next month.
